Having grown up in the area I not only have a deep passion for our watersheds, but also the fish and wildlife that inhabit them. I am a second generation guide and love having the opportunity to help individuals learn about the river and ecosystems that I am fortunate enough to spend my time on. I run our lodge Gold River Lodge on the lower Klamath, and guide year around.
- I am a US certified captain for inland and near shore navigable waters (50 tons master river and ocean)
- Licenses and bonded for Oregon and California
- Lifetime guiding permit for wild and scenic Chetco River
- Six Rivers national forest permitee
